In a crossroads scenario, Jayson 'La Maravilla' Velez (26-5-1, 18KO's) is all set for a showdown scheduled for Saturday, September 22 at the Rafael Amalbert de Juncos Coliseum, when he collides with 2000 Sydney Olympian Orlando 'El Fenomeno' Cruz (25-6-2, 13KO's) in the main event of 'Noche de Campeones DIRECTV.
La Maravilla vs. The Phenomenon will be presented by Universal Promotions in association with Miguel Cotto Promotions.
After his huge knockout victory over two division world champion Juan Manuel 'Juanma' Lopez, the always durable Velez had a great showcase in May in California, where he lost a decision to Golden Boy Promotions super prospect Ryan Garcia .
For his part, Cruz comes back to recover ground after losing to Terry Flanagan and José 'Wonder Boy' López, and managing to get a very important draw against prospect Lamont Roach in April at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico.
